Blokes win the battle of the sexes

Lismore Workers Golf Club rarely draws a gallery, but last Wednesday a small tribe of golfing enthusiasts walked the course behind four local golfers. The reason the crowd followed the game so avidly was because the four local players are also among the worlds best.

The nine-hole exhibition match also doubled as a Battle of the Sexes as former Casino and regular US tour player Michelle Ellis paired with Australias No. 1 ladies trainee, Lismores Emily Gray, to take on Lismores Rhein Gibson and Sam Brazel. Gibson is ranked No. 6 in the United States College Golf Stat Cup while Brazel has been part of the Canadian and Australian circuit.

The men ended up winning the day after birdying the opening hole and playing a little more consistently throughout the match.
